for a what in the world segment. a curious thing happened in the days following barack obama's election. a group of texans filed a petition. they wanted it can to succeed from the not so united states of america. the movement spread further encompassing each of the 50 states in the unions. it's a ridiculous exercise that will go nowhere. there are some real impulses across the atlantic. europe will have a new state. look at katacatalonia. the vote follows an unprecedented demonstration in september when about one million catalons marched the streets demanding state hood. the entire population is only about 7.5 million. the next step could be a public referendum on breaking away. consider scotland which has already reached that point. in october british prime minister dave cameron agreed to a deal allowing scotts to vote in 2014 as to whether they want to succeed. then there's the strange case of belgium. the people people dutch in the northern region. in the southern region they speech french. the people elected a set of local leaders who want to break away from belgium. why are break a

of their ideas about the budget. you know what, on health care, for example, obama care is a fact. it is a fact. and its -- that's what this election decided it is not going to go away. so any republican idea about how maybe there will be a better way to do it or maybe we shouldn't have done this, those ideas are obsolete. >> let me ask you something, you are forever and have been a supporter of no tax increases and you wrote an op-ed about grover norquist. i'm not asking about whether taxes should go up. but is the tax pledge, is that kind of behavior standing in the way of reinvention of the republican party? >> i don't think so. i think it's just the opposite. the reason that the left and some of your friends in the media have really, you know, ganged up on grover norquist, they have really been extraordinarily hostile in their tax against them is that this has been really the fortress of the republican party. that no tax position has been the defining issue for the republicans. i still think by the way it's a winning issue. americans don't like taxes. they do believe that we have to cut spe

's just been re-elected, he's the winner. the republicans were vanquished and i suspect president obama says i'll be calling the shots here. >> there is still a month left. we've got to have something to talk about for the rest of the month, right? you have to kind of look at this as sort of a poker game. everybody's going to sort of try to barter for as best a deal as they can get and know they are going to have to make concessions along the way. what he did is he went for it. he said look, i'm going to do $1.6 trillion in tax hikes, only $400 billion in cuts. he conveniently did not cut social security, medicare and medicaid which poll as the most popular programs and things that americans actually want. and if you look at it, 60% of americans actually support the idea of raising taxes and that of course goes beyond those that just voted for him. so he's going with what are the popular issues that i know i can get americans around me and i'm gointo put republicans in a really tight spot where they're going to have to either say look, we're going to make cuts to programs that we know t

think the obama administration, the justice department are trying to figure it out because what happened on election day was in washington and colorado it became the first two states in the country and actually the first two political jurisdictions anywhere in the world to decide to legally regulate marijuana like alcohol, so the feds have to figure this out. >> a little like alcohol. i can buy as many bottles of beer as i want. i can only have an ounce of marijuana in washington and in colorado, right? >> that's right. it's important to say, by the way, that what's going to happen this week in washington state and next month in colorado is just going to make it legal to possess up to an ounce in the privacy of your home. you can't go out smoking in public, all this sort of thing. the part -- >> you have to stay in your home really? >> yes. washington is going to be private. not puffing down the street. this is going to be fairly subtle. the part of the laws that say that washington and colorado state governments should set up a legal regulatory system like with alcohol, those don't ente

. and i think president obama is doing his very, very best. and the american people have spoken the last election, that we want change. so, you know, i think everybody misses teddy. and the great thing about teddy is, that he really was great friends with people on both sides of the aisle. and it's a lot easier to negotiate with somebody that you like. >> i think the president should play more golf with john boehner. he never played one game with him, if that. let's turn to more cherry matters. the rfk center, raising money to help people around the world. tell me about it. >> first of all, i'm bidding on you. >> i'm one of the prizes. >> you are a prize. >> you can go to www.charitybuzz.com search piers. and the current bid is $70 million, to bring four people to that studio for the cnn experience. >> you have competition against a lot of people. anderson cooper is up there, too. >> is he beating me? i will not be happy if he beats me. if you are watching, get on the website and bid higher. i'll give you a cup of tea, whatever you like. and there's a meet and photo with president bill c

or conservative. every single president since carter claimed to be, quote, born again. this was the first election since carter where neither candidate, nor president obama nor mitt romney claimed to be a born again christian. there was a choice there that was very different. >> how would you feel if a muslim president were to be elected? >> depends on what his views are on politics. you're not voting for a pastor. you're voting for a president. when i go to a doctor i don't ask the guy are you a christian? i ask him, have you done this surgery before? >> you did the invocation for president obama's inauguration in 2009. any sense to go back here in a few weeks? >> no, i'm sure i won't. many people don't know four years earlier i did an inauguration prayer for president bush at the beginning of his inauguration, but nobody noticed it. >> i want to talk about the coarseness in our culture a little bit. >> yeah. >> tyler clemente at rutgers university, the student who killed himself, very sad thing. his parents wrote that they left their evangelical church recently because they felt the beliefs on h

obama had won instead. if hillary clinton is the nominee in 2016, this will be an election decided by three or four percentage points. >> right. it always tightens. something happened last night. i'm curious about the other side since you're talking about 2008. marco rubio and paul ryan spoke at this dinner. these are speeches where they're trying to define who they are. how would a rubio ryan stack up against clinton? it sort of feels like 2008 reversed except experience would come on the democratic side with hillary and youth might come from rubio or ryan on the republican side. >> clinton is a favorite among young people, especially young women. they're going to help determine future elections. i think paul ryan and marco rubio, they're trying to rebrand themselves and recast the republican party as a party of diversity and perhaps big ideas and a larger goal post. but i want to say this because i have to say this as vice chair of the party. as you know, the democratic party has a large and broad and deep base including vice president biden, who's done a terrific job in his capa
